Electric vehicles are all the rage right now, but we’re seeing a similar shift in the aircraft and boat markets. Oceanvolt, a Finnish electric boat motor company, has a new motor with an extended range that can recharge itself.

While electric boats of all shapes and sizes are on the way, battery range and recharge remain common hurdles. However, Oceanvolt believes it may have a solution with the new Oceanvolt ServoProp 25 Sail Drive, a small motor for sailboats.

Yes, most modern sailboats have an engine to cruise slowly, cruise in a marina, or stay on course when the wind dies down. And similar to how cars have regenerative braking that gives you some battery back when driving and braking, the ServoProp offers hydro-regeneration.

Oceanvolt is a leader in the space, and their latest ServoProp 25 is the most powerful motor on the market. According plug-in boatsthe new model promises more than double the hydrogen power of previous models.

The company’s sailing engines use unique propellers with variable pitch blades, making them efficient for propulsion or regenerating energy from motion. Users can start the motor and keep the sailboat moving or switch it to regeneration mode with the flip of a switch.

In hydrogen mode, the ServoProp 25 can regenerate more than 5 kW of power when a boat is sailing at around 10 knots. It will recharge the battery as the boat moves through the water when there is enough wind. Additionally, Oceanvolt says that future updates could allow for even better performance.

Remember that while you will still need to recharge the battery system, and this won’t give boats infinite power, it will certainly help increase range for those cruising in the open sea. The new Oceanvolt ServoPop 25 is best suited for boats up to 70 feet in length and will begin shipping later this year.
